I actually find simple carbs to be the absolute worst thing to eat, and that includes many cereals ... oatmeal is about the only thing that really sticks for me and even it is usually not enough. If I eat just simple carbs (like white toast with jelly, biscuit, etc ... basically the stuff that makes life worth living ) I am all but guaranteed a mid-morning crash. I'm better off not eating anything at all.

But if I can get some complex carbs and protein, I'm usually good. My go-tos are cheese (those little Laughing Cow cheeses are great) and/or peanut butter with fruit or a very hearty whole-grain toast like the Seedtastic bread from Aldi. Sometimes I'll do cream cheese in oatmeal.

And once in a very great while .... a Chick-fil-A biscuit. Because damn. So good.

(I wish I didn't hate eggs so much, but I do, so eggs are out.)

Stress can affect eating habits.
I try to keep fruit and nuts at my desk (or an apple and peanut butter).

This does sound like it might be stress, but it could also be your body going "wait, you expect me to WORK?"

I find that oatmeal's staying power is greatly improved if you mix in a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter.
